The two little kids with a happy yet cheerful gaze found their way on their friend's house under the bright blue sky with beautiful scenery surrounding it. A beautiful mansion to be exact. They managed to go at the same exact planned time for their best friend's eight birthday party, sorry not sorry but they can't miss it for the world.
As the ten-year-old Lenan who's now grinning at his seven-year-old brother made it to the mansion's gate, he waved his hands on the guards, giving them a genuine smile with a "Good morning angels" due to the fact that they're already familiar with the guards, same goes for the maids... They're well known for the workers because of their mother, being the head housekeeper for the Jungs.
Once they entered the main door, they immediately ran to the kitchen, exactly to their mother's spot. The kitchen is one of the working places for Yeri because of the trust that was given to her to help manage the foods and desserts, the same goes for appetizers and drinks.
Well, Their mother is very well known as the best of the best cook of all time, so why finding a jade when they already have a diamond, right?
Once they entered the kitchen, the smell of different varieties of foods welcomed their nostrils with a beautiful woman on their front who's smiling on them with open arms... They immediately jump at their mother to give her a warm hug as Lenan noticed that someone's missing.
"Mama, where's baby Sky? Can we play with him now?" He asked only to receive a smile from his mother Who's now carrying his younger brother, Blake, swinging their body side to side while humming a random song. "Yes, you can, baby. And don't worry he's playing with konan at his room." She responded while showering her son's face a kiss.
"Can we go to him, Mama? It's his birthday, right? Look! I have a present for him." Lenan said, showing his handmade bracelet to his mother.
"Me too! Mama! Look! I will give him a lollipop." Blake says cheerfully while popping out the lollipop from his mouth, receiving a chuckle from his mother.
"Ewww, Blake! You're going to give him that! Is that even edible? Ewww, that's so nasty!" Lenan burst out laughing when he saw his brother drying the lollipop by using his tee.
"Here! It looks new now!" Blake says proudly at his now dried strawberry flavored lollipop.
"Oh bless these kids. Come on, Go upstairs now! Konan probably waiting for you guys!" She said, putting her son down while kissing their cheeks."And Blake, make sure that your lollipop is still packed!" She added, chuckling at her son's cuteness as the two runs immediately, disappearing at their mother's sight.
"Hey, Lele! Konan! Look! I invited Chris and Monie to come here and guess what!?" Blake says loudly while running at the living room of their shared apartment. "He said yes! But that's not the thing, he said they're going to eat with us!" He exclaimed while dancing at his victory.
"What?... Wait... Did you just invited them without asking me!?" Lenan asked as he gave him a glare only to receive a nod from his brother. "Oh God help me with this stupid brat!" He said as he facepalms.
And there's Blake just smiled, brushed and ignored him as he made his way to konan who's just listening to them. "Hey, Konan..." He shakes his shoulder while giving him a smile. "You're okay with them, right?" He asked, receiving a nod from his friend.
"It's fine... I can cook for dinner." He simply gave a nod and says "Help me prepare the ingredients and some pieces of equipment." He said, standing up with a little help from Blake.
"Can you cook some chicken, konie?" Blake asked, guiding his friend to the kitchen "well, Kenny requested that chicken and he'll buy me ice cream in return. Great, right?" He added and stopped when he saw konan furrowing his eyebrows.
"Who's that Kenny now? You said it's just Chris and that Simon, huh?" Konan asked, crossing his arms. Well, he's not okay with another stranger barging to his house.
"Oh right, don't you remember Ken? The kid you used to bully before?" Blake said as he looked at his friend's confused face so he continues "he's one of our childhood friends too!" He added, hoping that he'll remember him.
"You mean ken?... The one with tanned skin?" He asked when he remembered someone.
"Yes, it's Ken!... Kennard is his real name and I made him a nickname which is Kenny." He said while putting the ingredients at the sink.
"Oh okay, that's pretty cute tho..." Konan said as he touched the meat, marinating it with his recipes "Lele! Can help me prepare the table?..." He shouted.
"Sure thing, konan! I got you!" They heard Lenan shouted from the dining room.
"I got it!... Lele, guide him to the kitchen." Blake said as he made his way to the door. Looking at the screen monitor, he saw the three guys standing at the front. Pressing the button, unlocking the door, he immediately welcomed the three and lead them to the dining room.
"Thanks, Blake! Here are your notes..." Chris said, reaching his hand out to Blake as the smells of chicken and random dishes welcomed them.
"Wow... I can literally smell the chicken. Here's your ice cream, Blake!" There's Ken said. the said tanned skin guy, says happily as he let his nostrils be filled with the smell of his favorite chicken.
"Monie, Come here! Don't just stand there like a poll! Oh, Come on, don't make me drag you to the dining room!" Blake said, looking at his so ever silent friend with a stoic face. Well, that's his charm tho.
The four of them made their way to the dining table as they sat on their seats. They can't help but left in awe when they saw the dishes that made them starved even more.
"Wow... Who cooked these dishes?" Ken can't help but asked as he swallowed the lump forming on his throat.
"It's konan's specialty! Come on let's eat, I can't wait!" Blake exclaimed when he noticed his stomach is growling so loud.
All you can hear at the dining room was the sound of the clicking of their plates against the utensils while mumbling some compliments. As for Konan, he just let his head be filled with their praises and cheesiness at the mouthwatering food all made by him... Once they finished eating, they decided to help, clean, and wash the dishes...
And as for Blake, he won't let the surrounding eat them with boredom so while rubbing his tummy, he thinks of something great to do. He let his eyes scanned the living room then a smirk made it's way on his face as he finally found the solution.
"WHO WANTS TO HAVE A MOVIE MARATHON!!!" he shouted, walking at the center. Well, who wouldn't want a movie marathon, right?
"Ooh, that sounds good... What do we have here..." He heard Lenan said, shuffling the list of their mini theater.
"Can we watch that avenger..." Simon said, "that civil war one..." He said, pointing at the said one, "What?..." He asked when he noticed the looks he's receiving from the four, well most likely from three cause Konan can't see.
"Oh, nothing... I almost thought that you can't talk, you know." Lenan said, looking amused at him, "well... We can watch it..." He said as he presses the click button to start their movie marathon thing...
"Wait a minute, I'll make popcorns!..." Blake squeals.
"Be careful, Blake! You might trip your foot! Do you really need to run?!... Oh, God, help me with this kid..." Lenan shouted. He fishes his phone from his pocket as he types some messages and it immediately rang. "Hello, Yes yes... Okay, Sure... I'll see you there...Yes, he's fine. They're fine, I'm with them...Okay, bye..."
"Konie! Can you go with me?..." They heard Blake shouted. Something on his voice that yells he's scared.
"Here we go again..." He sighs while shaking his head.
"Konieee! You need to accompany me here!... You offed the lights!"
"It wasn't me, Blake! It was Lenan! And there's no way I'll go there without you, guiding me!"
"I will! Here, just go with me... There might be cockroaches there!" Blake says as he snakes his arm unto Konan's elbow.
"Blake, why are you shaking?" Konan asked after he felt the arm that holding his elbow shakes. His brows are furrowed with his ears enabled.
"Konie... There's--I saw s-someone standing at the front d-door..." Blake stammered. He's indeed shaking a bit and you can really tell that he's scared.
"Inside? You mean, you saw someone inside our unit?..." Konan says while toning down his voice. He knows that if he raised his voice and there's really someone barged inside their unit, then they're over.
"Konie... I saw him on the screen monitor... I tried to shoo him away but he just keeps on standing there..." Blake said.
"Let's check it. I'll talk to him..."
"Okay, let me just breathe..." Blake says while tapping his chest to accommodate his almost punching heartbeat that it might break his chest. Not a minute, they're already standing in the front door.
"He's not here anymore. Finally, I can now breathe evenly." He huffed an air as heaves a deep sigh but there's something caught his attention, outside. "Is that a bear? A teddy bear? Ooh, there's a plushie here! Maybe that was just one of my secret admirer. Oh my God!" He gasped.
"Aish, you just wasted my time... Come on, go get that plushie and let's get back to the movie..." Konan said. He's smiled at the sudden burst of his friend.
"Well well well... How cute you are, little plushie! I'll give you a name... How about bear? Ooh isn't that a pretty name? A pretty name for a pretty plushie..."
"Oh yeah... That's a good name... Really hard to think, right? Bear..."
"Let's go get the popcorns! I will put you in my room, bear! I won't be lonely tonight!" Blake cheers while clapping his hands.
The movie flows as good as they expected it to be, not until Blake starts singing the OST. Well, he has a beautiful voice but who on earth sings at the movie, right... As the movies passed by, they didn't notice the time as they continued to watch and watch not knowing the sleeping Konan on his couch. He decided to sleep cause he can't see the movie anyway so why not, right?...
The three giant guys, including Chris, Simon, and Ken ended up sleeping on the fluffy rug... They decided to go but the weather didn't agree as the skies rain so heavy. Well, it's raining cats and dogs... Much to their likeness, they didn't have to ask Blake when he was the one who keeps insisting on the idea of a sleepover.
As much as Lenan's wanted to wake Konan, he can't cause he looks so peaceful on his deep slumber. Nonetheless, he decided to get the extra pillows and blankets to avoid catching a cold...
His eyes suddenly avert its look on his brother Who's still up, smiling at him. He knows that smile is not the smile he wants to see. He never wants the smile coming from his brother, a smile that consists of sadness.
The tears forming were the thing that affects all of a sudden as he blinked the salty water on his eyes and immediately hugged his younger brother. Yet, he still manages to speak,
"Lele, I'm so happy, you know?..." He murmured quietly. He tried to compose it strongly but it didn't come up as he wanted to.
"No, you're not..." Lenan said as he brushed his brother's soft locks, still hugging him, "Drop that act... You don't have to act cool with me, Blake...you don't have to lie... I'm your brother, right? you really think you can lie on my face?" He added.
"I really miss her... I miss her hugs..." Blake says as he cried on his brother's hug, "Lele... I really miss her... And baby Sky... He's still nowhere to be found... I don't think I can do this... I don't think I can do t-this without them..." He cries silently.
"Hey, Blake... You know I miss her too, right?... I really do... But we can't change the past..." Lenan said, rubbing the back of his brother, "don't worry... We can still find Sky... And besides, I'm still here, r-right?" He said, slowly swaying their body.
"But I'm s-scared... Lele... What if I didn't m-make it this time?... I don't want to d-die..." Blake stuttered, "I don't want to... Lele, I want to see him again..." He cried, silently.
"Blake, listen... Listen to me!... You... You need to be strong... Please be strong for me and for us..." Lenan says as he caressed Blake's face only to find his tired eyes, probably tired from crying,
"We will fight together, okay? Don't worry about the bills. I can manage... Blake, please be strong... You can do this again. You're now stronger than Before, you can do this..."
"What if I didn't? Lele... I'm tired--"
"Shut up! You can't do that... Let's just sleep for now... Tomorrow... We will go to the doctor..." Lenan said, glaring at his brother.
Lenan Forced himself to sleep but every time he closed his eyes, it hurts him even more. Just imagining his brother, laying on the operating room can crush him even more... Nonetheless, he still needs to be strong. He doesn't want to be weak, not this time. This time His brother needs him the most...
As for Blake, he immediately drifts off to sleep. He's pretty tired from the exhausting day. One thing sure is, he needs to be strong for the sake of his brother. He still needs to find their youngest brother. They'll still find Sky.
-Treasured love-"Lenan! Let's play there! Konan! Come on! Blake! Hey Ken! Come here!" The nine-year-old Chris shouts happily, pointing his fingers on the playground's direction which they gladly obeyed...That's what they always do. Visiting their friends, banging on each other's house, and bringing their toys at the playground. It was an afternoon in December when they decided to have a mini picnic on their favorite spot...Little Chris happily brought his ball and a small gallon of strawberry flavored ice cream with Little Ken who managed to bring a bucket of fried chicken, cooked by his mother. As for Lenan and Blake, they only got the blankets and their toys with little Konan having their lunch, all cooked by their head housekeeper or should I say the mother of Lenan and
-See-through-"Honey... Why did you punch your classmate?" Yeri asks while caressing her son's soft cheeks with dried tears due to the heavy cry he got, "You know that's bad, right? Come on, I won't be mad... please tell Mama what happened. Blake, honey... Why, huh?..." She says calmly, sitting down in front of her son who's still sobbing."But... But he.. H-He said t-that y-you're just an m-maid..." Blake stuttered by, still sobbing, "And h-he said h-he... He said I'm s-stupid...And h-he t-took my l-lollipop...He s-stole it... You s-said that s-stealing is b-bad... S-So I p-punched him..." He said, lowering his face due to the embarrassment.Yeri just gives him a smile as she wiped the flowing tears coming from her son's eyes away. She's not surprised tho. She knows that her son is pretty strong, especially wh
-Bucket list-The two little kids found their way in the mansion's living room. when they decided to ask Konan's mother for permission to come when they agreed on their friend, Chris's idea of going to the cafe to play some arcade games with their squad, including Lenan, Chris, and Ken. They found their subject watching some movies as they heard her mumbling some words. Sneaking on the couches, they looked at each other's gazes and start mouthing a count, one... Two..."Mama Soo!, can Konan come with us, please?..." Little Blake said, looking at his best friend's' mother with his ever pleading eyes, "don't worry, Mama Soo! We will be here before five! Or before you know it!" He says as he turned his looks on Konan who's now grinning at him while nodding at the agreement.Well, his so-called Mama Soo was l
-Sorry, I overslept-"Lele... Wake up... Lele...Where are we?..." the eight-year-old boy asked as he takes a glance at the unfamiliar cream-colored room, surrounded with toys and paintings scattered on the wall. He noticed his brother rubbing his eyes, stretching his body as he takes a look at the room."I don't know, Blake..." Lenan said, grimacing at the unfamiliar room. holding his brother on his shoulder who's now sniffing, He fumes when he heard his brother's growling stomach, same goes for his."Lele... Hungry... I'm hungry..." Blake says while rubbing his stomach gently to ease the growling sound. He pouted. He just let his brother hold him.He just crawled into bed and he pulled his brother closer to him to ac
"Our fault too.""And they live happily ever after! How's that story, huh? Did you like rats or the humans?" Yeri said as she nuzzles between her two little boys who's giggly laying peacefully on their bed.It was a quiet yet breezy night when her two sons asked her to read them a bedtime story like what she always does before they sleep. And there she is now, being nuzzled by her two little boys under their night ceiling."I love mice, Mama! They're so cute and fluffy! They can cook too! Can i have a pet like them?" There's little Blake said. He was just a cute seven year old that time. He was left in awe when he heard that mice can cook like how the book described them."Hmm, let me think about that. Hmmn, maybe?" Yeri said, playfully raised her brows only to be
-Longing for someone-"Blake, can you get my cookies? It's there. Yeah, right there, inside the cabinet..." Konan says once he settled on his bed. He runs his tiny hands, feeling the soft mattress as he hums by the comforting scent of his room.There they are. Doing random things in Konan's room. They were told not to go outside the room when their Hyungs started to have some alcoholic drinks with a Karaoke session and snacks scattered on the table. Thanks to their Soundproofed unit, the loud sound of their music won't budge their neighbors."Here, koniee! It smells so good, can I have some?" Blake says then he gently hopped on the bed. He beamed a smile when Konan gave him a nod."Thanks. Eat it. I can't finish it all..
Konan's POV:I'm walking with Blake as my guide outside of our unit. He said he needs to talk to James-Hyung and he asked me if I want to come. Of course, I said yes. He's scared of walking alone, I swear. I know him like the back of my hands, he's a scared kid. I can feel the cold air touching my neck as shivers crept on my spine. Feeling his hand gripping on mine made me stop from walking. Then, I heard him greet professor Zhang a good evening-- Wait, what? Professor Zhang is here? What is he doing here? Did we miss his class? I hate this feeling. Did we just got expelled? Oh god, tell me this is not happe--"Konie! Greet him!..."that soft whispered of my friend caught me off guard, snapping out from the thoughts that are flowing through my mind with a hard grip on my hand so I just greeted him. "Good evening Professor Zhang. Nice to meet you." I never knew this would happen here... No, I'm not going to fail, not again."Konie! Hey!..." That snapped the hell out of my head as I hear
Blake's POV:Right now, I'm gonna say that I am in a state of mind where I wanna be, like all the time! A place where my package of pleasures is living their existence. Oh, I don't even know how did I get here. Mind me telling you that there are hundreds of soft cream clouds. Woah, this is so cool. And look! I'm flying! I can fly! Colorful snacks! Ice creams! Chocolates and bowls of milk! Where's my Bear? Oh, it's so unfair. He would be happy if I have him here. Wow, is that waffles! Ooh, there's a pancake too! Oh, I can smell it too! It's getting thicker! Their aromas! Suddenly, the pancake's scents were replaced by a strawberry one. I can't help but leaned over the strawberry scent, only to feelsoft locks.Locks? is there a strawberry locks? A hair?! How am I gonna eat this! Oh this is so unfair! Whatever. This lo
